Council Digs In On Dike Road Trees

Item: Coeur d’Alene City Council Signals Stronger Stand on Dike Road Trees/KEA Blog

More Info: In a procedure that will set up action at the next City Council meeting, Councilman John Bruning made a motion (seconded by Councilman Edinger) that would have the city formally opposing the Corps position, and would set up an ad hoc advisory committee to help the city fight the Corps and protect the trees. The motion passed unanimously setting up final action at the September 20th meeting. Councilman Bruning, reading from prepared remarks, said that the City needed to be clear in its opposition and needs to “draw a line in the sand and say no to a federal agency.”

Question: Is this a signal that the City Council was listening to the community?
